Vacation Paradise in London
Millions of visitors travel to London every year. As the nations’ capital it is a great blend of old and new, with plenty of medieval history and modern attractions all rolled into one. Whatever your interests there is something for you. But here is our top list of the sites you just must not miss on a trip to London:
1. Buckingham Palace – home of the Queen of England and a great building in its own right. Don’t miss the changing of the guards at 11:30am, but do check when you get into the capital as it doesn’t always take place every day. We recommend you get there early to secure a good location.
2. The Tower of London – it doesn’t get more historical than this! Home to the Crown Jewels of England, and where Anne Boleyn, the famous wife of Henry VIII, was beheaded. Founded by William the Conqueror in 1066-7, today the Tower of London is one of the world’s most famous and spectacular fortresses. In 900 years it has been a royal palace and fortress, prison and place of execution, mint, arsenal, menagerie and jewel house.
3. Tower Bridge – Often called London Bridge by those who don’t know better. This iconic bridge is recognisable anywhere in the world. Now you can take a tour around its innermost workings too.
